Paying for ITOP Courses

The ten two-credit ITOP courses are currently offered as Boston University Extension Courses. For the academic year 2014 – 15, the price per credit is $357 (or $714 per two-credit course). The BU price per credit changes each year with the beginning of the summer semester. In addition to tuition, there is a registration fee of $50 paid once each semester.

Registration for ITOP courses occurs at the first meeting of the course. The classes meet in the Metcalf Science Center at 590 Commonwealth Avenue. Please write to the course instructor or to or a few weeks in advance for the room number.

Commuting and Parking for Boston University Meetings

Courses at Boston University are held at 590 Commonwealth Avenue, the Metcalf Science Center. For commuters, the Green Line stops in front of the Metcalf Center for Science and Engineering (the Blandford Street stop, the first one outbound after Kenmore). If you choose to drive, Boston University graduate students can purchase an inexpensive parking permit valid after 4 PM at the parking structures on campus.
